SORRY, CURRENTLY SOLD OUT. Paddington Bear's favourite coneflower (or certainly should be). An Arie Blom cultivar, Echinacea Marmalade has a statuesque yet reasonably compact habit and really intriguing splendidly double rounded blooms given a shaggy effect by the drooping petals, all in an attractive shade of finest Seville orange marmalade with a hint of green to the centres. Fabulous and with a long blooming season from summer into autumn. Sun or semi-shade. Well drained soil. 30 in. 2 litre pot.
Echinacea Marmalade is easy on the maintenance front. Dead head to prolong flowering, and cut back in winter.
Echinacea are sometimes accused of being difficult to over winter. The culprit, if an echinacea fails to get through the colder months,is usually wet soil rather than the cold. So make sure you plant your Marmalade where drainage is good and it should be happy and longlived.
Here is a short video featuring Echinacea Marmalade (and some rather irritating music):
Echinacea Marmalade is a hardy perennial plant with shaggy rich orange double flowers from mid summer to autumn suitable for sun or semi-shade.
